[FM20] FK Gariunai Vilnius - Youth Challenge in Lithuania

Recommended Posts

FK_gariunai.png.621d61923a5d840a070ddacc46fafdc5.png

FK Gariunai Vilnius is a football team from Vilnius, Graiunia district. And in the little info I could find, they state that "FK Gariunai  is the protector of the Gariunai market". The market is the biggest in Lithuania.

 

I wanted another go at a nation people rarely manage in, and this time I decided to go with Lithuania. I have started my save in the Sunday Football League Ergo C Division, the seventh tier of Lithuanian football! There is no particular reason I went with FK Gariunai Vilnius, other than that I like their kit!

My aim for this save is to go all the way to the top of the Lithuanian football, and develop a lot of good players along the way. Hopefully boosting the national team, so that they hopefully can make it to a Euro Championship or a World Cup!

I will not be signing any players that has not come through our youth system. I may sign players that has left the club.

 

Facilities

401e7be0da29fa806ff9d22fc75429b2.png

We share our home ground with a lot of other teams, 21 to be exact!

Not much to see here. Hopefully in a few years there will be a lot of names added.

Here is the leagues I have loaded. I have also added every single league in Europe as "view only".

 

Thanks to Weiry for the DB! You can get it HERE.

 

Just forget the Honningsvåg save, it never happened. Turns out we could not get promoted from the league we were in. My mistake.

Pre Season 2019

c262a933f26679d22fe2a5d148ba2415.png

We beat the teams we should beat and lost the games we should lose, so all in all a decent pre season.

The media has predicted us all the way up in the fourth position. The board however want a mid table finish, and with the squad we have at the moment that is more likely.

 

Squad

e4a23026765ca6ba3354af5493ddfd90.png

We have three very good players, but other than we're very weak. Another thing is that three out of four best players  like the left side of the defence best.

U19 Squad

No one really stands out here, everyone has 5* pot.

Wow, that's a low level. I tried Lithuania myself briefly last year, but that was top flight. 

Good luck. I hope the other 20 clubs don't mess up the pitch.

This is the first time I'm managing a team in Lithuania, it has been good so far!

Thank you. I'm currently two months in to the save, and the pitch condition has gone from "Ok" to "Poor".

I realised that we had passed the midway point of the season a bit late. I thought that we played each of the teams twice, but it turns out we're only facing each team one time.

We started the league with a defeat, and after we drew the second game I was a bit worried that the media had seriously overestimated us, but we turned it around. We're currently sitting second in the league, two points behind FK Imperialas Vilnius and the only spot that gives promotion.

 

PoTS so far

I feared that offensive players just was not good enough, but Paulauskas has proved me wrong with 10 goals and five assists in 11 games in the league!

Youth Intake 2019

A decent first youth intake. Of course every player has 5* Pot.

This will most likely be our new starting right back.

We did it! Promotion on the first try!

Only three clean sheets over the course of the season though, that is one thing we should get better at.

The board wants us to gain promotion to the next league within the two next seasons. Not the easiest job in the world.

 

d14920d1695e4a2a88e70927867ed221.png

We got knocked out of the cup by a team that plays in the second tier. A 1-4 defeat against them was not so bad to be honest.

A bit surprising that we're predicted to finish 4th.

A very good first half of the season! May was a bit weird, losing two games. One 6-1 win and then a 1-5 defeat. I have no idea what happened in the Katastrofa game, but we got trashed.

One other thing to note is that Granitas C currently sits above their B team, and it could even go so far as the B team going down at the end of the season!

 

PoTS so far goes to Aivaras Vestartas.

Youth Intake 2020

1e6d4a9d241a36cde9c8c01049a18b45.png

I am honestly a bit dissapointed with this youth intake. Especially after we upgraded the youth coaching last season.  Every single player has 5* pot, no one really stands out in a good way. Except for Paul Barker, as he is Swedish! Not really a swedish name though.

 

Best players according to CA.

*EDIT*

I just realised I tagged all the players wrong. It should be (YP02) instead of 01... It's fixed in my save though.

Another year, another promotion! It was a very good season, and in the end we won the league with a 12 point gap down to the second place. One thing that's a bit annoying is that we lost four games, that in itself is not that badm but the those four defeats came against two teams!

 

0ff16d3ae7c4934b7cfb50bb123e4856.png

In the Lithuanian cup we got knocked out by Zalgiris B, the team that won the second tier in Lithuania. Zalgiris won the top league!

In the SFL taurė we got all the way to the final, only to lose it against Marijampole City. They won the league two levels above us.

A very close battle against Ernestad Paulauskas and Aivaras Vestartas! In my opinion this was the right order.

Another player that has grown a lot at the left side of the midfield. Second place in the PoTS awards last season.

This has basically been a copy of our pre season games! We played ten games and won eight, one draw and lost one. In the league we have played 11 games, won nine, one draw and one loss!

We have scored a lot of goals in the league, and that is thanks to our striker Ernestas Paulauskas (YP01d). He has 16 goals in 11 games!

Youth Intake Preview

If I could decide myself what I wanted to come through the next youth intake I would say a new GK, and maybe another striker.

Bloody hell, that's what I'm talking about! Almost every single player in this youth intake is good enough for the starting XI.

I got myself a new striker, and even though he "only" has 1.5* CA, the keeper is better than our current one.

One other thing avout this guy is his penalty taking. It's 10 and one of, if not the, best penalty taker at the club!

*EDIT*

He IS the best penalty taker at the club!

Another year, another promotion! I image it being like this until we reach the league where the teams are semi-pro.

We had no problems in the league, and ended up winning it with a 11 point gap, even if we had two bad games at the end of the season.

 

11c8a21be0514e9a47b57e1b895535a2.png

We got knocked out the first round of the Lithuanian Cup. And only made it to the Quarter Final in the SFL Taure. That was our last chance at winning it, as it's only for the teams in the "Amateur" league.

Pre Season 2022

Could not have been much better. A lot of big wins.

 

7160dcf16c0a0f14a418871132870105.png

The media predicts us 4th. Every time they have predicted us in the top half, we have won the league, so hopefully that happens this time as well!

Squad

ec8a6cf52c4c683f3f06127db2c0c650.png

The biggest problem going in to this season is that there is a 25 player registration limit. And with so many players with similar ability, it's kinda hard to chose a squad.

One thing to note is that one of my key players last year, Eimanatas Baranauskas, was rated 4* going in to the last season. Now he's only a 2*. That shows the quality (I use that term loosely) the new boys added.

The first half of the season has been a rollercoaster to be honest, a lot of up and down in terms of performance! But in the end, it's the points that matter, and we're only three points behind the leader. The first place does not guarantee promotion. There are four groups in this tier, and every group winner meets for a chance to get promoted.

 

PoTS so far goes to Ernestas Paulauskas. He scored a lot of goals for us last season, and even if we got got a better player in terms of CA, this guy scores the most goals.

This is crazy! Perhaps the best youth intake I've ever had in any FM save. The players that came through this year is so good that they turned our current best player from a 5* CA to a 3* CA!

It's fair to say that we have our new CB pairing, and even a new starting RB.

 

74c70221b1b0c5ccd179889390970da5.png

The main drawback with Rolandas Juskas is his height. But he is one of the strongest players that we have produced.

 

7b51538d8c61c2286ec9a667514e8d23.png

First I thought Tomas and Rolandas were brothers, but that's not the case.

So close, yet so far. We ruined our chance for promotion with a little drop in form in September/October, and even lost against the worst team in the league. With the new players that joined us after the last youth intake I believe we can at least win the league next season!

 

7806d9133195fe536280dae1b7ca1967.png

I said after last season that it was our last chance at winning the SFL taurè, turns out I was wrong, as we're still in it. And we get at least one more shot at it next season.

We got knocked out of the Lithuanian cup by last years cup finalist Kauno Zalgiris.

The Juska brothers will be key to us winning the league. They're not brothers, but both of them came through at the same time, that makes them brothers :D

We're scoring a lot less goals than last season, but on the other hand, we're conceding a lot less as well. At least we're first at the mid way point this time.

 

PoTS so far. Yet again, Ernestas Paulauskas is our best player, even though he should not be good enough. He keeps his place as long a he is performing!

It looks like another good youth intake, and the best part is that it looks like we're getting a new keeper. That is our weakest position at the moment.

Another great youth intake, with a lot of players that will go straight into the starting XI.

This is the best player we've ever produced, and I'm really excited to see how good he'll become!

After an almost perfect second half of the season we're going up. We even recorded the biggest win of the season in the Promotion Playoff Final!

And it looks like there is a bug, every single game in this save so far has either had rain or snow. I don't believe the weather in Lithuania is THAT bad!

For the fourth time in a row Ernestas Paulauskas win the PoTS award. He's the worst player in the starting XI at this time, but if he continues with this goalscoring he'll keep his place!

For the first time we're not predicted to finish in the top half of the league. It looks more like a battle for survival.

Yes. The league we're in now has one semi-pro team, and in the tier above 15 out of 16 teams are semi-pro (last one is pro). So if/when we go up I think we will turn semi-pro.

To be honest we have been doing better than expected. Even if we have lost three games out of the last five. The only game we deserved to lost was against Atmosfera, the two other games were tight!

We might actually fight for one of the promotion places if we continue like this.

 

PoTS so far. Yet again, it goes to the oldest player in the team, Ernestas Paulauskas. Even though he should not be good enough, he keeps on scoring!

Okay, the first big transfer from the club. It's so weird though, as he does not look like anything special.

I'll certainly be following his career. My guess is that he will leave at the end of his contract with Sampdoria and then retire.

The first season in the third tier of Lithuanian was very good, and we ended the season as number three, only two points behind the second team. Two bad months in July and October ruined the chances for promotion. The main reason we have some bad games is the cover in the team. Our starting XI is pretty good, but other than that we're not.

Next year we should be fighting for the first place all the way in.

 

50be4d5245abaf97bcc9d37a5f9837d5.png

A quick exit from the cup as well.

Nothing new here. Ernestas Paulauskas wins the PoTS yet again. That is the fifth in a row. He has won the last four PoTS with 78, 78, 76 and now 78 percent of the votes!

And even though he is our worst player in terms of CA and PA he'll keep his place!

This is actually the first time we lose a player I would like to keep. He would have been our second best CM. He goes to one of the best team in Lithuania, and I think that shows that the last youth players we have been getting is starting to be decent prospects.

At the midway point of the season we're first! It is very close though, and we have to keep up this good form to win promotion. We are much better with the defending part than we have been the last few year, and one of those reasons is our new GK. Our best player over the last seasons Ernestas Paulauskas (YP01d) has been injured for 3 months, and have just returned and played four games. In those four games he has three goals.

739796a6721adaf1f70ff0e45c748139.png

He has also helped us with three scored goals.

 

Another player transfered to Sampdoria. And as I said when Aurimas Vasiliauskas (YP05f) joined them last season, he just got released by them, and I guess he will retire soon.

Yet another great youth intake, but this time we also get a lot of players that don't have 5* PA. In my opinion that is a good thing, as it shows the players are getting better and better each year.

 

5d7f9d3a26eedd66c08a2f837ab83e2d.png

Another good GK. Hopefully he is willing to sit on the bench for the time being. I doubt we will keep hold of Edgaras Jankauskas (YP06a) for a long time and then the position will be open.

c493dfd43e77026dfed0f0d3cbec17a4.png

A new player for us in the CM position. This guy has some of the best physicals we've gotten so far in the save.

We did it! Next season we're in the second tier. Only two defeats over the course of the season, but it was still pretty tight all the way to the end. We lost our only LB to a broken leg (My fault as I forgot to register another LB) against Riteriai B, and I thought we would struggle after that, but we almost played better! And for the first time in the save we had a game without rain/snow.

 

544cb56a5f9deca81c89a2fb1caf10a5.png

The cup run was over quickly this year. But we played one of our best games against Kauno Zalgiris, and almost beat them in the end.

One thing to note is that Edgaras Jankauskas (YP06a), our GK, finished as the player with the second most goals for us!

For the first time in six years there is a new player voted as the PoTS.

There are some positive, and some negative thing about this. The best thing is that we can sign players on contracts so they don't get poached, but on the other hand the best players will most likely refuse to sign new contracts after two-three seasons.

Just a quick run-through of the players that was decent prospects when they left us.

I was certain that he would retire, but a Serie C team has signed him.
